We recently saw the arrival of the first gorgeous L’Oreal La Palette in Rose, a collection of beautiful, warm shades that allowed for a multitude of pink-leaning nude and neutral eye looks. Now we have the Beige variant, which is every bit as pretty as the first, but with more traditionally nude shades.
Just like the first, there are ten coordinated shades, ranging from barely there highlights and shimmery taupes, to deeper, darker browns and a stunning inky black. This is actually a great starter palette for anyone who wants to try more neutral eyes as you’ve got everything you need in one palette, both warm and slightly cool.
The palette is kind of broken down into two sections, with the five shades to left providing more day time shades with higher shimmer content, whilst the right five shades are smokier, deeper and mostly matte, with the exception of the shimmery brown third from the right.
As is often the case with mixed finish palettes, the shimmer formula is a lot easier to work with than the matte, but the matte is still a good formula, although you do need to swipe it a bit more for the same colour payoff. Unusually, the brush included is actually very good – for the benefit of the review, I used only the brush to do the whole eye look.
If we’re to start on the left and go from 1-10, the above look has 4 all over the lid and under the lower lash line, 8 on the outer corners, a light line of 10 along the upper outer lash line, 2 pressed into the centre and finally 5 on the inner corners. As I said, all was applied and blended using the enclosed brush, proving that it can all be done without the inclusion of additional tools, making this a perfect travel palette for £14.99 here – link.
